Audible Editor Reviews

This is Book 4 of an enchanting series about unicorns, amulets, dragons, and other fantastic creatures, which began with Into the Land of the Unicorns. When the tree that shelters Luster, and is also the heart of the world, is hurt, the unicorns must fight for their lives. Bruce Coville is both author and main narrator, and he's perfect for the job. As always, the Full Cast Family is splendid at enhancing this multilayered story with countless characters. Along with the ambiguities that accompany battles of good versus evil, there are quotes from Sun Tzu's Art of War and surprising humor. Since the story is lengthy and abounds with details, audio is the perfect format.

Publisher's Summary

In the center of Luster towers an enormous tree that is the Heart of the World. Now the tree is wounded, pierced by a tunnel that connects it to Earth. Through that tunnel strides Beloved, the ancient enemy of the unicorns, followed by an army of Hunters eager to destroy every last unicorn. At the center of this great struggle is the human girl, Cara Diana Hunter, who sets out with her friend, the gryphon Medafil, to ask a dragon to aid the unicorns. As she travels, Cara meets not only the dragon, but a mysterious stranger who may hold the key to Luster’s secrets.

As the threads of destiny weave about her, Cara will discover at last the truth about the unicorns – a truth that brings hard choices for everyone she loves as this magnificent, multi-stranded saga thunders to its astonishing conclusion.

Read by Bruce Coville and the Full Cast family.

    Story
    "Surprising Conclusion"
    Would you listen to The Last Hunt again? Why?

    Yes and No. Yes because I love this series and no because when you get into the "nineties chapters" it plays each chapter twice. You have to use the skip option to get to the next chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is not a short book. Let me just start by saying that it will take you a while to get through this book. What I liked about it though is that it didn't just give you a "The End" ending. Each of the characters were given their own chapters and this conclusion that some of us have been waiting years to read came to an epic conclusion that was well thought out and very well written by the author.


    What does Bruce Coville bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bruce Coville's audio books of The Unicorn Chronicles brings every character to life by giving them their own voice. Unlike a dramatized version, his unabridged versions actually follow along with the books while still having an entire cast re-in-acting the beautiful and wondrous world that is Luster, the land of the unicorns.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were some moments that gave me the jaw dropping feeling. Other times I laughed and I even cried at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that I would change is the doubling of the nineties chapters. It gives the audio book 2 hours of extra reading that it really doesn't need. This should be changed and an updated version should be sent to everyone who has purchased and downloaded this audiobook.

    Story
    "Decent book; several chapters were repeated"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Several chapters at the end of the recording were repeated, so we got for instance chapter 97, 97, 98, 98, 99, 99.


    Do you think The Last Hunt needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No; it was too long as is


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the earlier books in this series, but Bruce Coville got overly ambitious with this one.

    "Some technical issues"

    It seems that several of the chapters in the last portion of the book repeat themselves, but none are missing. It's just a bit annoying if your hands are full and you can't skip to the next chapter immediately.

    That said, still giving 5 stars. I read the first book in the Unicorn Chronicles when I was in grade school and now I'm finishing the series as an adult.

    "Bruce Coville is the best author ever!"

    There is not another book in the world like the Last Hunt. The characters and story comes to life off the page with this amazing audio telling of the Last Hunt! It is my belief that the story isn't finished but I wait on Bruce Coville to make that final decision. Hoping and praying he writes another book!

    "Had great potential"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Hunt to be better than the print version?

    I haven't been able to read the print version because it is too expensive.


    Any additional comments?

    I was extremely disappointed that Bruce Coville decided to use so much swearing in this book (it was all the Lord's name in vain). The first three books were not like this.
    It is still a good conclusion to this story, but it is hard to listen to when you know that something like that is coming.

    Story
    "Good story; terrible editing."

    The story of the Last Hunt is enjoyable. But for this audio edition the last 2.5 hours contain a lot of chapter that are read twice or sometimes even three times. I don't know who edited this, but they did a very poor job. The climax of the whole series is chopped up and it largely destroys the suspense and flow, which is such a shame.
